"Bad Boy" is a song written by Larry Williams. It is one of several Larry Williams songs which The Beatles covered during their career. Along with "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", "Bad Boy" was recorded by the Beatles on May 10, 1965, and was originally intended for a solely American release. However, "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" featured on the British "Help!" album that year. "Bad Boy" was first released on "Beatles VI" in June 1965. It eventually got a UK release on "A Collection of Beatles Oldies" in December 1966. [http://www.dmbeatles.com/disk.php?disk=44 "Beatles VI"] It is also available on the 1988 release, "Past Masters, Volume One".

The song features John Lennon on lead vocal and rhythm guitar, Paul McCartney on bass, George Harrison on double-tracked lead guitar, and Ringo Starr on drums.

"She Said Yeah" was originally the B-side of the Larry Williams single, and has been covered by The Rolling Stones and The Animals, amongst others.

The Canadian progressive rock band Rush featured "Bad Boy" in a Led Zeppelin-type arrangement during their early live shows. The Cleveland bootleg "New in Town" features the song, as well as an extended solo from guitarist Alex Lifeson. Vocalist/bassist Geddy Lee introduces the song as being from the "Beatles VI" album. After 1974, the group no longer performed the song live.
